Katerina Grolliou

 

Katerina Grolliou was born in Athens. She studied painting, microsculpture and jewellery design at the State School of Fine Arts in Florence and worked under the tutorship of the sculptor Magni Egisto. Katerina pursued her quests in art and jewellery in Paris and Seoul.

In 1990 she founded her atelier in Athens, “Atelier GROLLIO”, where she designs and produces her own creations in handmade jewellery and microsculpture. Her work also embraces painting in relief, sculpture and poetry.

Each series in painting relates directly to a matching series in microsculpture and jewellery and is complemented by her poetry.

Her website www.grollio.com presents her work from 1986 to the present.

“Memory Paths”, her first book of pictorial poetry, was published in 2006 (EPSILON publications).

Katerina has shown her work in over 20 solo and 7 group exhibitions in Greece, Cyprus and Italy.

Creations by the artist were exhibited on a long-term basis at the Florence State School of Fine Arts from 1986, the Athens Municipality Cultural Centre from 1994 and the Corfu Municipal Gallery from 1996, and are included in the following publications:
